Woodkid: Iron (Live at the Roundhouse, London)

Great to see a French act at the top of their game playing to a sold-out audience in London.

Audience filmed youtube clips are very much the 21st century's bootleg live tapes, complete with dodgy sound quality and too much audience noise.

At best it's a photocopied two colour paper sleeve, the track listings spelled wrongly, the tape is the cheapest TDK that was available and the sound is full of audience noise drowning out the band and there's a lot of hiss from several generations of high speed tape dubbing.

With video clips, you can add ropey camera work to the deal at no extra charge.

Still, it gives a reasonable snapshot of what must have been a great gig, and unlike those dodgy bootleg tapes you're not handing over a couple of quid to a dodgy market trader.

So for those lucky to have been there, and for those who weren't,  this is an approximate look at what at least part of the Woodkid gig at the Roundhouse looked like.

Woodkid posted on his Facebook page: "LONDON - I LOVE YOU ! Amazing crowd tonight"

Woodkid's confirmed he's playing again in London in November, with a show at the O2 Brixton Academy on November 13, and this time he's playing with an orchestra.
